Nothing says fall fun quite like a trip to the pumpkin patch. Truth be told, my family usually visits our local pumpkin patches more than once over the course of a season. Not only do so many of them tend to do much more than sell pumpkins these days, but we’ve made a game out of visiting the patch. And that game is the best pumpkin patch scavenger hunt!

This is just a taste of what could go on your scavenger hunt “items to find” list. Depending on the ages of your kids, you could make it more or less involved. The key is to have FUN with your pumpkin patch scavenger hunt experience. Plus, keeping everyone occupied cuts down on the arguing over which pumpkin to get that all too often ensues. Haha!
We have even been known to make a healthy competition out of our hunts and award a prize to the family member who checks off the most items. Our prizes have included things like the winner’s choice of dinner, movie to watch when we get home or a favorite fall treat. Adding a prize component certainly makes them want to head back to the patch again and again. Everyone likes to win at least once after all! And I must admit that Mom tries to make that happen. Wink wink. Happy fall!
